This is how my iPhone looks six months after using it without a case

There are two main reasons why I carry my iPhone without a case. On the one hand, I have AppleCare+ on my iPhone, so if it falls or breaks, it will be much cheaper to replace it. On the other hand, Apple always indicates that its terminals are very resistant, so why is it mandatory to put a case on it?

Small wear

Over the past six months, I may have dropped my iPhone at least 8-9 times. Therefore, obviously small marks have been generated.

On the front, next to the Dynamic Island we found a small scratch, and on the back, on the chassis of the camera, another of identical proportions. Therefore, the first conclusion I draw is that this iPhone is resistant, and much more so than generations like the 12 or 13, and that is that after the same period of time, the device had some marks of wearabove all sides.

Why is it so resistant then?

The main reason why our iPhone is resistant is because of the construction and the materials that uses the chassis and the screen. Specifically, we are referring to the Ceramic Shield. Although it has been introduced since the iPhone 12, its features have been optimized little by little, improving the quality of use and postponing deterioration.

According to Apple estimates in California, the technology Ceramic Shield It improves performance in falls by 400% compared to the iPhone 11, and three years later, we could say that this improvement has increased by 50% more. Why do I say this? From my own experience. Six months after having the iPhone and with practically the same use, the wear and tear was much greater.

The year after its launch, the same year I bought it, different bulges appeared on the back of the chassis near the edges as a result of always carrying it in my pocket or backpack. In addition, on its sides there is greater wear and tear as a result of the skin that is gradually being removed from the components that protect the device. So, is it crazy to carry your iPhone without a case? A few years ago, that is, with the X, XS and even 8 terminal, it was crazy, because the presence of the glass made it very vulnerable to impacts.

Currently, with the presence of aluminum and of titanium, the resistance has increased considerably, completely losing the fear I had when the terminal fell for the first time. In this sense, I just have to thank the guys from Cupertino, since now we can enjoy our smartphone a little more.

iPhone 15 and 15 Plus

In conclusion, my experience cannot be extrapolated to other users, since it is possible that at any time a bad fall could cause the device to break or bulge. However, my experience over the last six months is that the iPhone 15 can be used under the aforementioned conditions.
